Best Places to Work: 2018 (#78)
We believe that mobility goes well beyond cars. With our eyes to the future, we're setting our sights on an even greater mission of mobility for all. ‘Start Your Impossible’ is our call to action to make that vision a reality and inspire people to push onward―past their finish line, past their impossible. Because when we're free to move, anything is possible.
Here’s to the change-makers and the trail-blazers, the dreamers and the doers. We'll be sharing inspirational stories of our epic women leaders for Women’s History Month (WHM). First up – Susan Elkington, Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky’s (TMMK)1st female president. Watch her share her story at our WHM Kickoff from TMMK.
It's our people who help us go places
At Toyota, we challenge what's possible. We are a diverse community of people, all working together to make great things happen. We're looking for talented individuals with interesting backgrounds who want to work in an energetic, respectful, collaborative environment, to help us in our goal of innovating for a brighter tomorrow. With a wide array of jobs, internships, technical training and more, there are countless opportunities for you to grow your career with us.
A place for you!
This is an exciting time to be a part of Toyota, as we bring together all of our headquarters operations in Plano, TX (about 20 miles north of Dallas), expand our technical center near York Township, MI, and build a new production engineering facility in Georgetown, KY. But we’re in more places than just these three. With facilities and offices all over the country, you can find a job that’s right for you, whether it’s in engineering, finance, marketing, sales, strategy, IT, or another corporate support area. A lot of different skills go into making, selling and financing the future of mobility.

We build cars and trucks for all kinds of drivers, in communities across America. So it makes sense that our employees reflect the diversity of our customers. It’s how we build great cars and stronger connections in our communities.

I have been working at Toyota North America full-time (More than 10 years)
Great leadership and forward thinking vision
We lost some great talent when we left California
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Toyota North America (Plano, TX) in February 2017.
Toyota is very thorough about their interview process. This is due in part to their stance on not laying people off, but it is also just because they want to find people that are the right fit. Overall, from application to hiring, the process took about four months. I finally really got traction in the last few months. In total, I had phone conversations with four of their in-house recruiters, then I had four interviews with managers, and each of those interviews was with two managers (so eight managers total). However, none of the interviews had "gotcha" questions. It was clear they just wanted to see how I think, how I reason through problems, and how I relate to people.
